    Pee-Wee's Playhouse The Complete Series DVD Overview

    The show quickly acquired a dual audience of kids and grownups.Production began in New York City in the summer of 1986 in a converted loft on Broadway,Pee-Wee's Playhousewhich one of the show's writers, George McGrath, described as a "sweatshop".Reubens, always trying to make of Pee-wee a positive role model, sought to make a significantly moral show that would teach children the ethics of reciprocity. Reubens believed that children liked the Playhouse because it was fast-paced, colorful and "never talked down to them", while parents liked the Playhouse because it reminded them of the past.Reubens assembled a supporting troupe that included ex Groundlings and cast members from The Pee-wee Herman Show, including Phil Hartman, John Paragon, Lynne Marie Stewart, Laurence Fishburne and S. Epatha Merkerson.Reubens moved the production to Los Angeles for season two in 1987, resulting in a new set and a more relaxed work atmosphere Playhouse was designed as an educational yet entertaining and artistic show for children,Pee-Wee's Playhouseand its conception was greatly influenced by 1950s shows Reubens had watched as a child, like The Rocky and Bullwinkle Show, The Mickey Mouse Club, Captain Kangaroo, and Howdy Doody.
